3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Epcot food and wine festival 2011. Poured hazy dark straw toward copper with off-white head. Nose was caramel malt, lemongrassy hops, florals, tropical fruit. Tasted as it smelled, with a solid complexity and malt bill that complemented the hops, giving an overall flavor that reminded me of Two Hearted bugt a bit more wheaty and peppery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Epcot Food & Wine 2011. Deep amber beer, a bit cloudy, with an off-white head. Aromas of floral, and pine hops along with something sweet. Tastes of malts, biscuit, some caramel, toffee, lots of pine/spruce hops. Very hoppy without being overwhelming. Ends on a bitter, woody taste. Medium bodied, yet easy drinking. Very nice example of an American strong ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish brown pour with a nose of caramel malts and orange peel.
Flavor of caramel, sugar, pine and hop and a splash of grapefruit.
There is toffee, caramel, citrus hops, and a touch of fruit. The finish is a bitter -sweet finish. I liked it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Epcot food and wine festival 2011. The aroma has both malt and hops in a plentiful way and maintains balance. There is toffee, caramel, citrus hops, and a touch of fruit. The appearance is deep amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall one of the best beers from this brewer.
